“Scene Study Workout” – presented by Xavier Owens
Actors always need to stay sharp in their craft. Yet seldom do we ever come together to give our skills a "workout" . . . which is precisely the purpose of this workshop. It will allow us to meet and present scenes and monologues to a group that will provide feedback and constructive criticism. Haven't we all had those times where we would've benefited from getting the opinion of another trained ear? Be it a long rehearsed piece or a cold reading, we will be able to work our material with other actors in a safe environment.
The only requirements are that you bring at least one scene (max 2-person scenes for now) and, if you'd like, a monologue as well. They must be on paper, not just memorized! But most importantly, bring an open mind with a willingness to get up there and work out!
